3074Re: LEMAX Figures
- Sep 4, 2002Hi Guys,
I've been very much a lurker on this group, as I've been mainly working in
Modelling minimum gauge railways in smaller (On15) and larger (Gn15) scales
for which I run the Modelling Minimum Gauge group.
Happily, I now may be able to make a positive contribution to this group.
I'm sure you all know the LEMAX people who make the Christmas villages sold
by shops such as Michaels. But, I wonder If you realise that their range of
figures and accessories goes way beyond Christmas villages and that their
figures generally measure out to around 56mm to 60mm tall - which with
1/32nd scale being 10mm to the foot has got to be pretty close to 1/32nd.
I'm not sure If Yahoo will let you se the pictures, but please try :
to see what some of the figures look like with their bases removed and put
in a railroad setting posed next to wagons made by or kitbashed from the
If you can see these photos, I think you'll agree that they are pretty nice
figures, AND, the best part ~ they cost between $1 and $1.50 US ~ which has
got to be fantastic value. If Yahoo won't let you see the photos, I'll post
them to the FS32 files - let's know.
If you'd like to see more, there are a few websites you can visit.
Unfortunately, no one website covers the full range, but by looking at them
all you'll see about 97% of the range.
I think you'll be amazed at the number of figures that can be adapted and/or
repainted to fit in with a RR setting.
You guys will know better than me how the figures sold for 1/32nd compare in
size and bulk, but to my thinking If a standing male figure doesn't measure
between about 56mm and 60mm then they have got to be underscale for 1/32nd.
